Your son should be at this event!

Brendan will be receiving the rank of Eagle on Saturday May 6th . 

We strongly suggest that all scouts attend. Supporting Brendan on this day is something we should all do (unless you have a prior commitment). The troop will pick up the cost for all youth, but we need to know who is actually coming as the caterers need a final number, NO LATER than Monday night

Once again, We expect all scouts, who don’t have prior commitments, to be there. Full Class A uniform.

Please let Maureen know if your son is attending:maureen.sammon@pubworx.com

Thanks

Mother’s Day Food Drive

We are collecting canned goods, rice and toiletries for Senator Joseph Addabbo Jr’s Mother’s Day Food Drive. What’s great about this drive is that most collections occur in the Fall and it’s at this time of year when food pantries run low and supplies are most needed.

Kindly bring in any donations to the next meeting at Trinity on next Friday, May 5.

Reminder – BSA Cyber Chip

After discussing it with Mike, we decided to require everyone BELOW the rank of Star to work on this because, not only is it a requirement but it will help with good practice for the scouts as they venture into the online world.

The requirements are simple: 
Go to the BSA Cyber Chip page ( http://www.scouting.org/cyberchip.aspx )

From there, go to the NetSmartz page and watch the videos for the School Grade range you are in Grades 6 through 8 or Grades 9 through 12  (http://www.netsmartz.org/scouting) .

Discuss what you learned with your parents.  Bring in the contract you wrote up and signed with your parents to show me you did it.  

The last 2 requirements for each Grade range we will do at the meeting(s) – be ready to discuss it!

Any questions, please contact John Mohr (john.mohr@gmail.com)

BSA Cyber Chip

At the latest TLC it was decided to continue to work on rank advancement requirements.  One of the requirements for Tenderfoot and for Star is to earn the BSA Cyber chip card (Like Toten chip and Fireman chip, but for the Internet!)

After discussing it with Mike, we decided to require everyone BELOW the rank of Star to work on this because, not only is it a requirement but it will help with good practice for the scouts as they venture into the online world.

The requirements are simple: 
Go to the BSA Cyber Chip page ( http://www.scouting.org/cyberchip.aspx )

From there, go to the NetSmartz page and watch the videos for the School Grade range you are in Grades 6 through 8 or Grades 9 through 12  (http://www.netsmartz.org/scouting) .
